The Van Eyck received on Tuesday, 20 January, the ‘Stimuleringsprijs Mens en Cultuur 2014’. A prize introduced by the Province of Limburg to award cultural entrepreneurship.
The Van Eyck won convincingly; the jury praised the courage, vision and long-term strategy of the academy. The report praised the way the Jan van Eyck Academie reinvented itself, the successful renovation, the openness and active stance of the institute.
The Van Eyck received the first prize of 30,000 euros; a recognition of the hard work that has been done since the repositioning and reopening in March 2013.
